We’ll buy your property in Durham

The experts at The Property Buying Company understand that selling a house can be quite a stressful process.

About Durham

Durham, as I’m sure you will know hopefully owning property in the area, is a city in the northeast England. Generally speaking the property prices in Durham compared to the rest of the country are relatively low and according to Rightmove the current average value in the last 12 months as of July 2021 is £191,173.

The value is trending in a positive direction in recent years though, so if you have held the property for a few years, chances are it will be worth more now than when you bought it, even if you opt for a quick cash sale.

The Durham Property Market

We’ve talked about the house prices you might expect in Durham, but what about how long it might take to sell if you put your house on the open market as opposed to opting for a quick sale? As an average according to Home.co.uk in Jul 2021 you can expect to wait around 205 to get an agreed sale, to put that in perspective, that’s almost 7 months! This ranges from 285 days for a flat to 129 days for a semi-detached home.

Your Property Sale Options

We are a quick sale company, as we’ve mentioned across this page, but you do have a few different sale options available to yourself and it depends on your particular situation as to which might be the best choice for you. We’ll take a look at a few options and whether it could be suitable for you:

Open Market

This is the most common way that most people who own Durham, and the rest of the UK, opt for when selling their property. The open market is using when you use an Estate Agent to list your home on Rightmove, Zoopla and other property portals. You are likely to achieve closer to market value going through this method, but out of your options, it typically takes far longer – unless you price to sell quickly. It’s a common option, but the issue with it is, there is no guarantee as when you will sell as you rely on the general public purchasing your property.

Auction Houses

Another fairly common option is to sell your house at auction. This can take quite a while, a few weeks, to prep your property for the auction house, and there’s no guarantee that it will sell when the gavel hits. This method can be great for particular kinds of property, auctions usually do well for problem properties or those that might work as good properties for rental yields. Generally, people at auctions are generally more savvy when it comes to the property market, so the likelihood unless there is a bidding war, is that you would get lower than market value.

Cash House Buyers

That’s us! Cash house buyers like ourselves will offer you below market value for your property, but in return you will get a guaranteed sale in as little as 7 days, although this can be extended if you require. It isn’t suited for everyone, if you don’t require a quick sale then the previous two options are likely to achieve you a higher overall value, but if you’re looking to sell your Durham home quickly, this is a great option and getting an offer is completely free and no obligation, so you might just even want to know what we can offer as a backup.

How Much Can We Offer You?

You’re not going to want to hear this, but without actually chatting to you about the property, it’s an impossible question to answer. We’re upfront and honest about the fact that we will be unable to offer you full market value for your property, but what we will offer depends on a lot of different factors.

All it takes is a quick chat and we should be able to give you an idea of what we can offer, it’s completely no obligation and only takes a little bit of your time.

Why Choose Us?

We like to think there are many reasons that you would choose us ahead of our competitors! The one we're most proud of is our fantastic customer service, which you can see is evident by our reviews on TrustPilot & Reviews.co.uk. You can also trust us because we are part of the National Assocaition of Property Buyers & The Property Ombudsman, which means we have to adhere to a strict code of practice.

We're also completely transparent from the start, we're honest in the fact that we can't offer you full market value, but we'll offer you a fair value and a service that means you can sell in as little as 7 days.
